LondonMetric is behind the plans for Bedford Link Logistics Park, the final phase of its 700,000 sq ft logistics scheme. It follows the successful completion and letting of three warehouses across 185,000 sq ft in 2019, and the speculative development of a 165,000 sq ft facility, which will be available for occupation from February 2021.
The latest warehouse will be ready for occupation in Autumn 2021. It has been designed to meet BREEAM Excellent standards and will provide for the generation of Zero Carbon energy.
“With congestion a significant and increasing cost for the UK economy, its equidistant location between the M1/A1 provides great optionality and transportation resilience for occupiers to meet consumers’ demands for ever tightening delivery windows,” Mark Stirling, Asset Director of LondonMetric, said.
“Bedford has established itself as a key logistics hub and has recently attracted a significant number of new and high profile occupiers because of its strategic location and modern infrastructure."
